Thanks for clarifying, MrFlibble.

I'm aware that some act as both a gate/supressor (Smart Gate does I believe), but I knew not all did.
Main Rig:

Epiphone MKH Les Paul Custom 7 - Ronda
Ibanez RG8 "Scarlet" - AKA The Rambanez
Fender Strat "Danielle"/"Dani"
Line 6 POD HD Pro
Randall XL 4x12

Come join us... [/SIZE]

Purchase list: Jim Root Tele, Jim Root Jazzmaster, MTM20

No they aren't.

I'll agree that many pedals incorporate elements of both, but that doesn't make them equivalent.

I'm surprised, you're generally pretty good at the more technical elements, but you're way off in left field on this one.
